We booked a whale watch for April 8 about a week in advance. Two days before the scheduled tour, the captain called and said that the boat had engine problems and that he had to do maintenance and was canceling our trip. I asked about our deposit and he ASSURED me that he would credit us for the $120 deposit... More

Went whale watching with colleagues on a foggy Tuesday morning. Along the route we saw otters, and sea lions just doing their normal morning routines. About 1.5 kms from shore we were greeted by a school of bottlenose dolphins heading north. Another half km out was the first sighting of whale through water spouts when they exhale. We saw a...

A little shocked that a passenger was allowed to free steer the craft, alone - and rather poorly at that- is this a safety issue? An abbreviated trip to feed the fish

Great little ride around the bay. We had kids with us, ages 2, 3, 8, and 13. All of them loved it. They got to feed the fish and see other animals in the water. Definitely worth it for the little ones. Kevin, our guide, was great.

We joined our tour on a lovely sunny morning in Morro Bay. The sea was calm, the setting perfect. We first passed the sea lions lounging in the sun and were then entertained by sea otters before heading out of the bay. It didn't take long for us to spy one whale who was feeding nearby. However the real show... More

We took our 5 and 8 year old kids on a 3 hour whale watching trip and can't speak highly enough of it. The crew were lovely, friendly and knowledgable. The boat was the perfect size. And the whale watching was....totally amazing. Within 30 minutes we were in the midst of about 15 humpbacks and spent 2 hours out with... More

We went on the sea sub tour which was short and sweet. We motored over to the sea lion lounge and watched them toggle for a sunning spot, then meandered to the sea otters floating in the bay. We moved to a location were our captain floated the boat and fed the fish. This was the only reason for the... More

My friends and I took the whale watching trip and we enjoyed it so much. For at least the first 20 to 30 minutes we saw many sea birds, shear waters among them, which was very interesting as the tour operator really had a lot of knowledge about them. Then we started seeing sea lions and then the whales! Whenever... More

Took the catamaran ride out to whale watch. It was the best trip like that I've ever been on. The captain and helper knew a lot about the whales, how to read the water and all the sea life we saw. They also knew when to be quiet and let the allure of the whales and ocean enchant their passengers.... More
